gutierrez serving under president george w. bush. let's talk first about the business community and get the questions right. as i'm saying them i'm reading them. are they willing to absorb tax hike if there's the end all, be all to not go over the fiscal cliff? keeping that in mind, would that wreck havoc in the business community? >> yeah. i can't speak for all business leaders but generally speaking a tax hike, a rate increase is not good for the economy especially at this time. this process is very disappointing. after everything we have been through and after the cam pin and the election, it seems like it's still a same tactical political poker it's always been. and the problem here is the world is watching. and it's almost like our system is being tested. can these guys still -- can these folks, these people, the congress, can the system still solve problems? >> we're -- the system is being tested by the very people who are -- which is odd. >> i know. >> they don't have to test it. they don't have to test the system. they can come to agreement without testing the system or that clo

happened, when they cut the jobs under george w. bush we lost 8 million jobs. when they raised taxes, this goes back to bill clinton when the rate was 39%, we created 22 million new jobs. i mean the evidence is out there. boehner keeps throwing that out there. and every economist, every reputable economist says that is total bs. again, that's classic evidence of boehner's lack of leadership. lynn, thanks, john for the call. lynn is calling from coos bay oregon. >> i love your show. >> bill: thank you. caller: you i thought boehner was delusional. i think he has a serious drinking problem that probably happy capshandy caps his rational thinking. republicans continue to be obstructionists. i knew they would do it after the election. but one thing i found out last week that people aren't realizing about this tax problem that's looming is that i was talking with my tax preparer last week. she told me that the irs is going to have to rewrite the entire 1040 form and that they may not allow electronic filing until mid march because they are going to be beh
w. bush. more interesting to me is the noths that ailes supposedly according to mcfarland on this tape trying to entice petraeus into the presidential race saying, you should quit unless obama offers you to be the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. you should quit. you should run. i might leave fox and run your campaign. i don't think he would actually do that, but the idea that rupert murdoch might bankroll a petraeus candidacy not that farfetched when you consider murdoch has given on a couple occasion seven-figure sums to the republican party. >> and howie, in the interest of complete fairness, "the washington post" reached out to roger ailes for his response to that, and i want to read for you what he told "the washington post" according to the paper. he says this, i am going to read his words. it was more of a joke, he says a wiseass way i have. i thought the republican field in the primaries needed to be shaken up and that petraeus might be a good candidate. sounds like she, meaning k.t. mcfarland, thought she was on a secret mission in the reagan administ
a window of opportunity to resolve that issue. and former george h.w. bush is being treated at a hospital for bronchitis. he may be released this weekend. now back to "hardball ". >>> back to "hardball." let's take making a deal here. for all those at home who want to see republicans and democrats work together to avoid the fiscal cliff, we can bring you two lawmakers who are open to cutting a deal before the end of the year. with me are members from both sides of the aisle, u.s. congressman lee terry, a republican from nebraska, and u.s. congressman jerry connolly, a democrat from nearby southern virginia. but first, i want to start with you. you told the "omaha world herald" this about republicans, we're screwed either way. we have no leverage in these discussions. congressman, what did you mean by that? >> what i mean by that is that the president wants us to take a tax vote before he's willing to talk about anything else cutting or reforming, and republicans just aren't going to do that. so what he's doing is setting us up to be the fall people for going over the fiscal cliff. frankly
that happened in september. the unemployment rate, while it has come down, is still higher when george w. bush extended it. .. now he has also said he is not wedded to every detail of his plan, that he will compromise and he looks forward to concrete proposal that addressed the question of revenue for sale. they are open to revenue. the fate of the raise tax rates on the wealthiest americans. it's mathematically impossible to receive targets necessary or balance in a way that only closes loopholes and tax deductions. both economically -- >> that's been your earlier point. >> depending on the proposal you're talking about. it is either possible to do it if you stick it to them about class and race taxes on the middle class you can tax the wealthiest americans from having to contribute more, or you do it in a way that would go after things like charitable deduction for the home mortgage plan in a way that is not either economically sounder political feasible on capitol hill. so we hope for a specificity from republicans. if they need something different, if their ideas are different from ours, w

. these tax cuts were enacted by george w. bush in 2001. still a bad idea then, i believe. at any rate, we had a surplus. it was sold to the american people because we have a surplus, we ought to give money back. we'll have the tax cuts across the board which benefitted mostly the wealthiest of americans. we knew that at the time. they were adopted as a temporary measure. what part of temporary doesn't john boehner understand? what part of temporary don't these republicans understand, right? i mean what is it about suddenly suddenly, it's become gospel. it is sacrosanct that you can never raise tax on the richest of americans. the very ones i'm one of them, who ought to be paying more in taxes. it is just insane! so they were attempted as a temporary measure and they're going to expire in ten years. why in ten years? because everybody knew in ten years things might change. we might no longer have a surplus and we might need the money. that's exactly what the case is today. president obama extended them for two
